I was waiting for the Manor to depart when I heard this approaching - you know me, I film anything that moves - even if I don't know what it is!!

I looked it up on the wiki, so now we know. Must admit, never seen anything like it before. Will try and add a photo later.

What a strange machine but it looks quite an old (modern?) design to me. Is it just visiting the railway or a permanent resident? By the way a great video.

Thanks Reg, pity it was only in full view for part of the video, but still interesting to see, and hear.

I have much the same approach with still photos, which is how it got on the Wiki in the first place!

I assume it is here for a short visit, although looking on OnTrackPlant.com, B&R Track Services are also shown as the owners of the two other large pieces of equipment at Highley, Plasser and Theurer 07-16 Universal Liner/Tamper DR73202 and Plasser and Theurer UST79S Switch Crossing Tamper RU411, which seem to have become permanent fixtures. (If anyone has any more info on the status/ownership of those two, please let me know)

Anyone know who B&R TRack Services are? It did seem strange SVR hired in a track machine when there were a few at Highley.

Is it hired? We've had tampers and other OTP visit regularly for quite some time now, but generally get it done for free in exchange for allowing the company involved to train their operators using real equipment on real track without annoying Network Rail!

Here's an image cropped from the video:-



No improvement on the one in the wiki, as it was rather distant and as mentioned, from the video.

If you want to see a larger version of the image in the gallery, click the link below, it's the 957x638 pixel version, my usual size, not much clearer though.

Is the machine still on the railway?
I did wonder why it was going towards the carriage works in Sharpo's video.
If it has now departed I guess it went by road transport?

I can now answer my own question. The machine had indeed left the SVR and noted working on the extension of the GWR on the 9th May. Must have gone by road then?
